That didn’t take long.

Blizzard backs down on requiring real-life names for forum use.

Now if they could just back down off of the whole RealID thing altogether.

    I think it’s a great idea (RealID) but without the Real part. Like Cryptic’s version, where you have an account name etc. Also, if changing the registered name was easier then I wouldn’t have a problem with it, but since my dad’s name is on the account I just can’t advocate it’s usage au present.

    A lot of people didn’t like Cryptic’s version. The whole @name prevented people from playing alts, or even a different game: you could tell when your friends were online playing Star Trek, or an alt, and you couldn’t even hide from them: the anon feature didn’t make you anon on a friendlist, it just didn’t show your location or character.

    It discouraged a lot of casual friending.
